Nicci Green from Articolo lighting

We finally made it to the Articolo showroom in Richmond and unsurprisingly we were blown away (pun intended) to see Nicci Green’s gorgeous range of mouth-blown lighting, lamps, pendants and wall sconces in the flesh. The setting for her creative process is the beautiful and carefully considered space designed by David Goss of Studio Goss, and it's definitely worth having a look if you get the chance. Through Nicci’s unique bold style and mastery over her materials she balances playful individuality with restrained elegance in every piece. One thing I’ve always loved about Nicci Green’s range is that each piece has its own voice and often each piece is visually quite different from the next, but all her works are unified by Nicci’s timeless, great design and respect for her materials.

Kate Ballis

This July, acclaimed Melbourne-based photographer Kate Ballis will unveil a breathtaking body of work titled Glace Noir at Darlinghurst’s Black Eye Gallery, signalling her first Sydney showcase. Shot using the classic Hollywood ‘day for night’ technique, the austerely elegant works depict the Perito Moreno glacier in Argentina from varying angles, unearthing a series of ambiguous landscapes that play on light, tone, texture and scale. The photographs capture a serene stillness in time and space while simultaneously revealing a glacial underworld heaving with life force.

The dark, inky tones juxtaposed with puddles of celestial blues exude an almost intergalactic aesthetic. Invoking a sense of ambiguity as to the time and place of each photo, the artist emphasises the notion of day as night and night as day with interchangeable light that outlines mystery and intrigue in each depiction.
